Save Money with LED Holiday Lights

 

U.S. Department of EnergyWashington, D.C. – As we make preparations for cold-weather energy savings in our homes, many Americans are also preparing for the winter holidays putting up strings of holiday lights (also referred to as Christmas lights or decorative light strings).

Electricity bills can grow during the holidays if you decorate with strings of lights. Light-emitting diode, or “LED,” holiday lights offer a quality alternative to traditional lights and save both energy and money. The Department of Energy estimates that if every household switched to LED holiday lights, the country would save approximately $410 million in electricity costs. «Read the rest of this article»

The Final Horne: Govs better with Fraley, Tebow vs. Brady, NBA is back, NFL picks and what’s going on this weekend in sports

 

Clarksville Sports NetworkCaught some of Austin Peay State University’s men’s basketball practice Thursday and they were really working hard. They are just a different and much better team with John Fraley back at center. He just makes everything go and allows Will Triggs and Melvin Baker to play their natural positions. Fraley doesn’t need to score that many points, but his rebounding and presence in the middle makes a huge difference.

The Govs have made some other moves by starting freshman Herdie Lawrence and moving TyShwan Edmondson to the bench and having him as the sixth man. But even then, everything just flows much better because Fraley is there.
